Open call: writers respond to Hurricane Harvey – Friday September 8, 2017

From its founding, Gulf Coast has kept its home in Houston, Texas. Its mission to elevate diverse voices from across the globe has always been inspired by the multiplicity and vibrance of the community there. As Houston begins to recover from Hurricane Harvey, Gulf Coast looks to the many artists and writers who have already begun the difficult work of rendering the storm and its aftermath. Gulf Coast wants to provide a platform for these voices. Starting now, they are inviting submissions in response to Harvey. There is no reading fee and accepted work will be published on the Gulf Coast blog. 

Poems (up to 3 per submission) should be typed with your name, address, phone number, and email address in the header on each page.

Stories and essays (up to two per submission, no more than 1,200 words per piece) should be typed, double-spaced, and paginated, with your name, address, phone number, and e-mail address on the first page, title on subsequent pages. Submissions of more than 1,200 words are less likely to be accepted.
